Employee Asbestos Information
Employee Asbestos Information

 

Hanford employees have expressed concerns related to asbestos, asking that certain Deactivation and Decommissioning (D&D) sites and existing facilities/steam lines in the Central Plateau be inspected for Regulated Asbestos-Containing Material (RACM), any asbestos material identified be contained and/or cleaned up, and any adverse health effects be determined.

We thank those employees for raising these concerns. Raising concerns and acting on those concerns is essential to a strong safety culture. Updates are being posted here for current and former Hanford Site employees to share information on asbestos and describe actions taken by the Department of Energy, its contractors, Hanford Site employees, and regulatory agencies to address the concerns.
